Why am I not surprised to read that WPP, the Poisoned Dwarf's Evil Empire, has been the most acquisitive Holding Company in the first quarter? Since its founding in 1971as a manufacturer of wire shopping baskets, WPP enjoyed a relatively quiet life, then His Gnomeship bought it in 1985. His first acquisition was a company that made teapots, the factory burned down a year later. Sorrell used the insurance money to buy JWT... OK, I made that up, but you never know!!! Since then, WPP has bought a gazillion companies, the majority of which no longer exist. But the original WPP is still making wire shopping baskets. No wonder Sorrell pulls down a hundred million fucking dollars a year!
Tomorrow... I shall buy China!
